the obama administration needs to do is -- you know the mideast is in chaos right now and israel is going to be affected a versely by that. what i think the obama administration needs to do is become more hands on in trying to promote arab israeli peace, peace between the israelis and the palestinians. that involved a whole lot more things than just settlements. and i think it was a mistake for instance for president obama in his first term to come out and make the fight on settlements. every administration in the united states has opposed settlements because they create facts on the ground that promote opportunities for peace. but it was a mistake for him to go out and say no more settleme settlements, no more expansion settlements and the secretary of state said the same thing and the minute they push back they cave. if you're going to take that position, you don't cave. but i think what's needed is a hands on approach to the peace process, arab israeli peace involving everything, not just settlements, but everything else. get the parties back to the table talking peace. it is an

to engage in some of these activities overseas, where right now, for instance, there's a lot of pressure on president obama to intervene militarily in syria, that would be the worst thing in the world we could do in my opinion. we should support the syrian opposition, politically, diplomatically, economically, but not militarily, because t t that's a slippery slope once you get into it. >> not even a no fly zone? >> i don't know, if you start a no fly zone, you got to get into the anti-aircraft batteries. but the government is going to fall. so i think the policy that the administration's following on syria is absolutely the right policy to follow. and i think american people are going to begin to demand more and more that there be a significant national interest involved before we engage militarily around the world. >> let me ask you about last week's news about israel deciding that in response to the palestinian declaration -- >> yeah, i think -- >> they're going to build settlements which would essentially make a con ttiguous balancing of state impossible. >> especially for i

be the well that is getting poisoned right now, as positions are going to harden but with all of these negotiations they sometimes look most dire before they break. here is the other complication. the debt limit, president obama also said that he's not going to negotiate at all over the debt limit. i don't see how you can get that resolved by december 31st. >> now, could the republicans give in on the tax rates on the rich in this country if they do want to use the debt limit as leverage? >> they could. lot of republicans have said, listen, they know taxes are going to go up, but they want to know how far the president is willing to go in cutting spending, especially that entitlement spending, even social security, before they sign on to the higher rates. you got these guys circling each other before coming together. >> gut check, though. if i'm sitting at home and i'm not following politics closely, it looks like the usual gamesmanship out of washington. in your gut, do you think that this is basically theater and they'll come to a deal quickly? >> i think it's -- i think the od

is the only one in the history of man. it was forged to protect the citizen as rights and citizen's pursuit of happiness. the government is perfect. the government was the citizen. it is no longer the citizen. now the citizen has to cobecome means for government. o president obama has an idea of national healthcare. it may be a compelling idea. his dream of healthcare is not my dream. president obama is not using a force of government to coerce the power of federal government to compel not just me and you but every single american in this country to fund his dream. it is not the purpose of the american government. >> maybe what i can tell you is this, if somehow you decide business is no longer profitable you decide to sell the company would you make a promise on the show i want to you run for congress. you make more sense than a lot of the folks making the decisions. i hope people will pay attention to you in business. >> i will that if you make me a promise. the role of government in america is split between federal and state and local for that matter. with congress failing, recor

. all right, guys. you know, one thing about barack obama, he is an excellent speaker. he did this whole thing about the life of julia. remember that one? and it seems like the campaign never ends. when he talks he caulks about christmas and families and stress. i want to call up assad here of john boehner and i want you to compare the two in terms of their language. >> we have a debt problem that is out of control. i believe it's appropriate to put revenues on the table. the revenues on the table are going to come from gets who? the rich? there are ways to limit deductions and close loopholes and have the same people pay more of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates which we believe will harm our economy. >> can i tell you something? that was so boring and so complicated and it didn't speak to me. what spoke to me was christmas, american families and stress. yes? >> that's what obama does. he speaks -- this is the point talking to the country. is he using all of those -- him meeting with the middle class family is kind of absurd. boehner is boring the hel

president obama was a strong advocate on the second amendment and as you know, illinois has the most, i believe, unconstitutional laws in the country. they don't allow any right to bear arms and before the debate he said he wanted to pursue the so-called assault weapons ban. fbi law enforcement says it doesn't reduce crime. we don't need it anymore, it bans guns that look scary and the president wants to renew that and also said that he was going to, was supporting a u.n. treaty on arms, which just hours after he was elected and at the united nations signed and that does not recognize the right 0 keep and bear arms and the united states would be signing on to a worldwide treaty with countries like syria and iran, in which would water down our right to bare arms. >> i noticed there was a spike in gun sales after the election, why is that? >> well, because of those things and president obama's history and the first term of regulations and executive orders, things like that to try to restrict guns, so, people are want to get guns and may be restricted and worried about government having
